Economics: Who gets what?
Economics are structured to create and distribute wealth. The most important question a person might ask about an economy is, “Who gets what?” And of course the sequel, “How much can I expect to get?” This course will examine many of the current economic issues that divide Canadians and challenge governments, such as free trade, income inequality, welfare, government regulations, poverty, pay equity, subsidies, banks and healthcare. Particular attention will be given to some of the complexities that are essential to understanding economics and that will help individuals to better cope with fluctuations in the economic cycle.
